The city is famous for its harbour, for its natural setting in the Cape Floristic Region, as well as for such well-known landmarks as Table Mountain and Cape Point. In 2014, Cape Town was named the best place in the world to visit by both The New York Times and The Telegraph; and the World Design Capital 2014.

The River Club


The River Club is a 20th century landmark with a backdrop of mountain-scapes, golf greens and riverside bird life that brings a calming appeal to any gathering. Centrally located just 15 minutes from Cape Town International Airport, the City and the Southern Suburbs in all directions; the River Club’s new conference centre with its fold-out functionality and seamless style is the perfect venue for bringing people together.
